    Some a$$es need to be kicked for this one, preferably Sharon Osbourne's too.
     
  3. I'm not exactly sure what in the hells was going on at that show, but I've always liked iron maiden, that just seems messed up.

    There was a really irritating pop-up for a registry scanner that just wouldn't go away when i followed this link. One of those that you don't trust pressing anything on, including the close button. Got rid of it and then when I tried to leave the page there it was again. Anyone else?

    (Back on topic)

    I don't know the story behind this (got a bit sick of the 'hope she gets cancer again and dies comments so didn't read it all) but hats off to the band for staying on, though I wouldn't blame them at all for walking off. I saw Ian Dury at Glastonbury in '84 and loads of idiots were throwing mud at the band. They left the stage and it took 20/25 minutes of continuous cheering from the crowd to bring them back on. I'm glad they came back as it was a great show (shame about stuff getting robbed from my tent when I was watching it :crying: ).

    I was at that show, their PA got yanked like 4 times during their show, people were throwing eggs(which I don't get cause they wouldn't let us bring ANYTHING inside), and spitting at Bruce Dickenson. There was even a guy that ran onto the stage with a HUGE American flag during The Trooper, when Bruce was waving the British flag. Then Sharon came out and started calling Bruce a prick and all, it was pretty sad. Maiden still put on a hell of a show, despite all else. I became a Maiden fan in that 55 minutes....
